News   LATW's She Stoops to Conquer Will Star Marsters, Bergl and Godley
 
James Marsters, Emily Bergl and Adam Godley will lead the cast of Oliver Goldsmith's 18th-century comedy She Stoops to Conquer for L.A. Theatre Works; performances will begin June 16.

Martin Jarvis will direct the limited run that will play through June 20 at the Skirball Cultural Center. She Stoops to Conquer will be recorded and broadcast on LATW's nationally syndicated radio theatre series, "The Play's the Thing."

In addition to Marsters ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), Bergl ("Southland") and Olivier Award nominee Godley (Rain Man, "Love, Actually"), the cast will feature Rosalind Ayres, Julian Holloway, Christopher Neame, Paula J. Newman, Ian Ogilvy, Darren Richardson and Moira Quirk.

According to LATW, She Stoops to Conquer "follows the misadventures of Charles Marlowe (Marsters), a young man painfully shy, awkward, and tongue-tied in the presence of his prospective fiancée, Kate Hardcastle (Bergl). When deceived by the mischievous Tony Lumpkin (Godley) into believing the house of Kate's father to be an inn, complications accrue and misconceptions increase exponentially. The resulting mess combines slapstick with perfectly-phrased wit to create a uniquely comedic brew."
